    I can make a good guess, but I am curious nontheless.
    My name is Greek origin? Does that mean I'm Greek origin? lol, J/K


    BTW, Rum means the people that live on the southern part of Cyprus and Yunan means Greek. I think Cyprus Greeks are not the same as Greece Greeks, right?

    aren't Cyproit Greeks a mix of Egyptian or something? I mean, I don't think they are the exact same race with Greeks??

    Egyptian influence? possibly.
    But aren't Turkish Cypriots 'mostly' converted Cypriots who predate the Ottoman conquest of the Island. A Turkish Cyrpiot told me that.

    At least in basketball we keep statistics

    Grekce should have been used rarely, cause I didn't see it before.

    We normally call the Greeks as Yunan, and Greece as Yunanistan.

    Rum is the name of Greek people who lives in the Turkish territories, like the ones who reside in Istanbul, Izmir, etc. The word was in usage since the Ottoman times, and for that reason, Greek Cypriots are still called as Rums, and the European parts of Istanbul as Rumeli (Land of the Rums).

    ARKADIOS

    Gender: Masculine
    Usage: Ancient Greek
    Other Scripts: Αρκαδιος (Ancient Greek)

    From an ancient Greek name meaning "of Arcadia". or from Arcadia.

    Arcadia is a region in Greece, its name deriving from αρκτος (arktos) which stands for "bear" in ancient Greek. There are still bears in the mountains of Arcadia (the ones which did not burn in summer) as far as i know.

    Haha, yeah some retarded priests object when the name is not christian as if it is a sin if it's not. Especially in Greece where there are so many nice ancient names yet 70% of the male population has the same 6-7 names.
    The Euroleague Organization and Mr Bertomeu are like the Bulgarian Government: corrupt, partially stupid, and a huge underestimator of people's intelligence.

    While Carlos is very old name Neev/Niv was just been named in the recent years in Israel.
    I think that if you go back 50 even 40 years back you wouldn't find anyone with this name.
